Community Concerns

St. Luke Lutheran Church is a “service” focused church. There are many ways for you to join us in helping our local community and beyond.

“Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?  

“When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 

“When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?”

The King will reply, “Truly I tell you, whatever you “did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25: 37-40)

Even in these times of social distancing, we are still the body of Christ together.

Back Packs and School Supplies

Needy kids at Charles Mack and Parkway Elementary are always grateful to receive backpacks filled with school supplies. Thank you for your generous donations which helped fill 130 back packs for these schools this year!

Other Ways We Help

We meet the community’s needs is by offering St. Luke’s facilities as a meeting place for local organizations, like the Girl’s Scouts and other Anonymous support groups.

Collections and Donations

We collect women’s and children’s clothes for St. John’s Shelter for Real Change, an emergency 24-hour shelter that supports homeless women and their children, giving them a place to stay and helping them transition from crisis to self-sufficiency. We collect women’s clothes and baby diapers to support Chicks in Crisis, an organization that helps homeless women and women facing unwanted pregnancies.

We collect non-perishable foods to support two local food banks: the Elk Grove Food Bank and the South Sacramento Interfaith Partnership.

If you want to donate clothes, diapers, personal hygiene supplies, or nonperishable foods, contact the church office or the chair of the Community Concerns Board.
